New Warbird offering from E-Flite

Guys

E-Flite will no doubt be releasing a partner for there well received P-47. Question is what will it be? Take a moment if you would and vote what you think there next warbird offering will be. If you select other please mention the model you think is coming up next.

Thanks

You and I both greg but somehow I think the next model will NOT be from the Allies. I voted for the ME-109 but somehow think it will be the Zero.

Lets hope your right, and Im wrong!!

Tommy:

I already have several German planes and would like something a little different....and that flys well. So far all the Zeros I have read about have some sort of problem. It woud be nice to have one with good manners

I voted P-40. i have long waited for a decent P-40 to be produced in a parkflyer scale (that doesnt cost $100+) made of easily repairable EPS.

to me the P-40 slot is a blaringly obvious hole in the production lineups of all the large foamy manufacturing companies like GWS, E-Flite, and Ultrafly. FSK fans i have nothing against that company, their models are beautiful, but i want a larger, less expensive model of this aircraft.

i sent an email to E-Flite a while back after the release of their excellent P-47 asking if they would ever consider making a P-40 and i got an encouraging response: that they had forwarded the email to their "warbird department".... encouraging because i doubt they would have a warbird dept. for one lonely warbird model

so heres to hoping its a P-40... but knowing E-Flite no matter what warbird they come out with next it will be a winner in looks and performance.

I voted other. Although I love my P-47, and would like a simlilar P-40, I would hope that E-flite would consider breaking away from the pack and do something different than everybody else. A Hawker Hurricane or Sea Fury would be awesome. They'd also have the market cornered on those two, because to my knowlege, nobody makes a foamy, park flier version of either of these.
Another wish would be a Supermarine Spitfire. The Alfa plane is beautiful but too expensive. The GWS version.... well, lets just say "then there's the GWS version".
If there were something in between, quality and price wise, that flew well, I'd be all over it.

I gotta agree with Mr. McCormick, I'd like the P-40, but somebody simply has to make a 1/12th scale Hurricane.

Canít ever have 2 many good flying German warbirds Foamie!!!

As much as I love the P-40 < My Pops was with the AVG in China> the idea of a Hurricane is outstanding! I left that model out <as well as all twins> as I figure it would be at best a distant possibility.

Keep em' coming!

I would like to see some form (green or grey)Zero. Or a ME-109G-6 R6 from them. The 109 would go well with the Jug The Zero would be cool. I would most definately make it a Rufe... There was a guy on here that did that with the GWS kit...I'd love to, but GWS kits I don't think are worth the money or the work--despite how many people make them look amamzing. Gimme an Alfa plane any day!
